Report: Asking price for Spurs-linked midfielder reduced by French club

Toulouse are reported to have lowered their asking price for midfielder Ibrahim Sangare, who has been linked with a move to Tottenham Hotspur, according to Foot Mercato.

The report suggests that the French outfit who suffered relegation to Ligue 2 at the end of last season were originally asking for €10million but are now prepared to accept a fee in the region of €8million (£7million).

Get French Football News claimed last month that Tottenham were very keen to bring the 22-year-old to the Premier League.

Tottenham have already dipped into the transfer market ahead of the new season having signed Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg from Southampton, Wolves’ Matt Doherty and the arrival of Joe Hart on a free transfer.

Despite Toulouse’s disappointing campaign, Sangare was one of their very few shining lights where he was tasked with trying to shield their back four and win back possession.

Our priority has to be the recruitment of a target man to help take the burden off Harry Kane and a player which Mourinho can bring off the bench to adopt a more direct approach if we are behind in a game.
